that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"

Listen to the melody within your soul.

and the fear-based advice
your neighbors are so willing to give you.

hang "go away" on the door whenever we want,
clean and tidy often... or never,
launch from and return to,
are truly ourselves.
